Director: Tom StoppardWriter: Tom StoppardStars: Gary Oldman, Tim Roth, Richard DreyfussSummary: Showing events from the point of view of two minor characters from Hamlet, men who have no control over their destiny, this film examines fate and asks if we can ever really know what's going on? Are answers as important as the questions? Will Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (or Guildenstern and Rosencrantz) manage to discover the source of Hamlet's malaise as requested by the new king? Will the mysterious players who are strolling around the castle reveal the secrets they evidently know? And whose serve is it? —Mark Thompson <mrt@oasis.icl.co.uk>
